Thanks Laura.

You both do great with English!!

puzzeljac

Aww, no I understand, I thought you were English. I also use a dictionary. Writing an other language is much more difficult as talking. The same with German. I don't speak French, but I do Italian. So you don't live that far from me. Nice. Have a nice evening too and sleep tight.

Thank you Ank, now I understand what you mean. It was maybe a little late for me yesterday evening. I live in Belgium in the near of Liege. When I was 5 years old I go in a Dutch-speaking school and after I go in a french-speaking.school. I also live for 38 years in Germany so I speak also German. English is a little more difficult for me, sometime I need a dictionnary. But since I am on Jigidi I make progress. At home we speak all French.
Have a good evening.

Sorry Talia I said it wrong. I meant to ask, did you use google translator? Or do you speak Dutch? How comes you speak Dutch? Have you been here? Ank.

Sorry Puzzeljac I don't understand what you mean. What must I try with google? I speak fast very good Dutch.

Hi girls, I'm glad to see you. I have a very busy day and was not much on Jigidi. I'm glad to see you all here.
Talia ..... just trying with google, or do you speak a little Dutch?
That building is not a castle. And you'll never guess what it is. And I don't tell you. You have to wait for tomorrow to read about a great success story of a good man.
Jo, that is a Aquaduct. The road goes under the water. We have a lot in NL, most in Friesland. It's very nice, you don't have to wait for a open bridge.
Jana there is space enough for lovely walks with all our kids. :-))
Girls I'm sure you will like Akkrum.

Indeed, Sandy, VERY much to look at!! I do like the "limousine" outside the house and the row of boats having waited for the bridge to open. Like a duck with ducklings lining up!! Gorgeous houses, what an estate!! Thanks so very much Ank!!

Good morning Denise, we crossed. I hope you read the comment I just wrote. I'm sure you will like Akkrum. I allready worked for an hour in the garden. This afternoon I will do more. I want to take advantage of the beautiful weather.

Good evening Treker and Shirley, sleep tight. Good morning Lorna and Sissel, have a beautiful day.

Yesterday we had very nice weather +15C (59F) and all day sun. Today we have clouds again, no sun, but the temp will be OK. At this moment 11:00 AM it's +9C.(48F).
Akkrum is a very nice village with a few special sights. That large building is one of them. It has a special story and I can tell a lot about it. I made more photos that I will post and then I also wil tell the story. So Lorna you have to wait till tomorrow, I hope you do not mind.
Shirley Friesland has very many villages, and they are all close together. If you take the country roads you can pass 5 villages in 10 minutes. Everything is close. NL is just a small country.

Sissel

Morning Ank - yesterday lovely weather - today even better up around +10C - so out in the sun :-)

I agree with Shirley; it looks a very nice place. What is the large building in the middle picture on the right?

Looks lovely, Ank, the towns and villages are very close together, only 10 minutes drive.
